If you're looking for some great Mexican/international food, Food Rustic in Khalidiyah is a good place to start. This place has a little bit of everything.
Picks of the bunch include seriously good fish tacos and fish n chips. For those who like spicy wings - uh huh, spicy they are and were rated pretty highly by the other diners. The poutine was also really great and not trying to be anything other than fries, tasty gravy and cheese. Lush. The buñuelos for dessert were gorgeous little churros-like things and finished the meal nicely - but ask for them without cayenne unless you like a fire in your mouth 😅
The chef is Mexican and shows real flair at times. All in all, this little place which definitely looks rustic, is worthy of a place on your 'hidden gem, worth a go' list.
